With all of college football's Week 10 lines, odds and totals available on FanDuel Sportsbook, we can dive into the handful of matchups that can potentially be capitalized on when betting against the spread (ATS).

Keeping that in mind, here's a look at three Week 10 college football ATS matchups to exploit this weekend.

All betting lines, odds and spreads are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. NC State @ No. 23 Wake Forest

Wake Forest has quietly risen to the second-best team in the ACC behind No. 4 Clemson this year. Even though the Demon Deacons haven't exactly been blowing their FBS opponents out of the water, NC State has struggled immensely in contests away from Raleigh this year. The Wolfpack are 0-3 on the road thus far, and they've lost those three games by an average margin of 22-points, and have yet to come closer than 18 points in any of those contests. While Wake Forest doesn't appeared poised to run NC State out of the building in this one, the Demon Deacons could be looking at a bigger cushion than 6.5 points toward the end of the fourth quarter.

2. No. 7 Oregon @ USC (+3.5)

After Oregon surrendered only 7.67 points per game (PPG) through its first six contests of the year, the Ducks' defense has fallen off a cliff and given up 33.0 PPG across their last two games. Meanwhile, USC standout freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis has returned from injury and led the Trojans to a 2-1 record, with that lone blemish coming as a 3-point road loss to a then-No. 9 Notre Dame. In its four home games this year, USC is averaging 36.75 PPG with a 3-1 record that includes two wins over top-25 opponents.

3. No. 14 Michigan (-20.5) @ Maryland

Even with a road loss to Penn State in Week 8, Michigan appears to have found a new gear in recent weeks. The Wolverines played the Nittany Lions tough in an incredibly hostile environment before turning around and pummeling then-No. 8 Notre Dame, 45-14, at home in Ann Arbor last weekend. History is certainly on the Wolverines' side in this Big Ten matchup as well, considering Michigan has never lost to Maryland on the road in College Park, and the Wolverines have outscored the Terrapins by a combined 63-10 across those two appearances.
